Superb Fairy Wren
Mum and Dad continue to watch over their newly arrived.
(A whole afternoon watching the 4 of them is some entertainment)

Lovely shots, they look in good condition considering they're protecting and feeding young.

Another male Variegated fairy-wren. I think slightly incomplete morph into breeding plumage (patch of grey on the head)
2nd photo again a male. I don't know if just started morph into breeding plumage or almost finished morph back to non breeding.
Part of the family, helping out with nesting duties.

Another local family just starting. One of three Brown goshawk chicks. First sight of the chicks for me. Last year 3 chicks fledged.

that's very interesting. Never realised they did that.
Ours stay the same as far as I know.
(I just read our wrens are the most faithless birds in society. Female may be courted by up to 13 males in an hour so Google Says!

For Superbs, on their 4th or 5th year they don't morph back to non breeding. They don't usually survive long after that (colour makes you an easy target to spot)
